“The whole village is in shock,” Mayor Johann Deutschmann described the mood in Fulpams to the Tiroler Tagzeitung on Saturday afternoon. Not only this, due to the devastation caused by the storm that came on Friday evening. Stubai’s people are also concerned about their pastor, whose white Suzuki was washed away in the 100-metre-wide mud on the B183 in the Medraz district. “Our pastor is still missing. There is hardly any hope, we should probably expect the worst,” Deutschman says. Especially since the missing person’s car was completely destroyed and broken into several parts.

About 200 fire brigade operations were recorded on Saturday night because of the storm, especially in the Innsbruck-Land district. Small bridges were broken and buildings were also affected. A search was made for other possible victims in Fulpems on Saturday as eyewitnesses said they had seen two vehicles in an area with debris flows.

Evacuation, transport and supply flights continued till 3:50 pm.

  • No emergency personnel were injured during the operation.
